Promoting Ultimate Karate Training

April 25th, 2008

So I have finally come up with a great program for those seeking personal martial arts instruction at the school, work, or conveniently at your home. If you’ve been reading my posts and website you’ll know that I’ve been trying to come up with a name for this program, and exactly what it will entail. After many late nights and brainstorming sessions (which typically consist of me bouncing things off of my friend Adam) I believe that Ultimate Karate Training can be a program that attracts a demographic seeking a more personal touch to their fitness training.

Going to the gym is great. Getting a personal trainer is taking it one step higher. But… having a personal martial arts trainer that can not only help get you fit, but also teach you self-defense moves that are practically invaluable. Priceless! Read more…

Ultimate Karate Training

April 22nd, 2008


You may ask, “why finally”?

I finally came up with a pretty cool name for my private lessons that I am trying to promote - Ultimate Karate Training.

These lessons are will be geared to those wanting one-on-one private instruction on martial arts training and fitness. Sessions are more customizable to the client seeking certain goals and interested in learning modern self-defense techniques.

I have not come up with a complete description of the program and it’s structure, but that will be coming soon! If you would like some basic info, please go to our Private Instructions page.

Karate Pump

April 22nd, 2008

Karate Pump. The new cardio-karate class offered by The Dojo of Karate.

After many days of pondering, and numerous discussions with female friends and family - I have decided to implement a new program to offer the 20+ crowd looking for a high-intensity workout.

Karate Pump is going to be a 1-hour class that combines aerobic exercise and martial art basics such as:

  1. Kicks, punches, and strikes
  2. Interval training
  3. Weight and resistant training
  4. Plyometrics and Isometrics
  5. Deep stretching

All while moving to the beats of modern, top 40 music. None of that “sweating to the oldies”…

Feel free to go to our Karate Pump page to learn more about the program and what it has to offer.  I think you’ll be excited to get signed up!

Former Football Star Tries Karate

April 17th, 2008

I enjoy reading in the mornings, as I’m a huge sports fanatic. I am partial to football, but truly enjoy all sports… minus cricket and curling. I just don’t find much excitement… Anyways, I happen to come across a really cool article in the NFL section. I graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder, and we sorta have a football tradition. Though lately the tradition has been to get in trouble and loose important games. But, that’s beside the point.

Well, there was this football player that played for the golden Buffaloes by the name of Michael Westbrook. He is best recognized for “The Miracle In Michigan“. Read more…

What’s cracking this week

April 15th, 2008

As many of you may recall, I had an architect come over last week to do some measurements of the place. The guy was very helpful because he understands that I’m on a tight budget, and was willing to offer sub-contractors for me to contact for the plumbing and electrical.

City code is requiring that I add another bathroom because of load occupancy. You know when you go into a restaurant and the “load occupancy” says 204… that’s what I need to do too. So I’ll have two bathrooms, a small area where students can place their bags and personal belongings, and a small office for parent/student conferences. I guess he had to draw up EVERYTHING in the place. Read more…
